This is the first of two paintings I’m working on that prominently feature a yield sign. As I’ve worked on these I have been thinking and wondering – what is it about the yield signs? Why do I feel compelled to paint them?? I love the splash of red, but it’s more than that. I am not drawn to stop signs in quite the same way. I do, however, have the same attraction to power lines and light poles – they make a painting more interesting somehow.

Yield sign #2 should be completed next week.

Buy this painting.

  1. I know how you feel. I only want to paint freeways and take photos of power lines. It’s odd, but fun.

    I love this painting. Beautiful.

    • Thanks for looking Ryan. I’m glad I’m not the only one fascinated by these things.

  2. Like the almost Rockwell feel of this picture. Great work. Here in the UK they’re called Give Way signs 🙂
